Elevate Team Award Winners

VUMC Teams are critical to our overall success. We rely on teams to accomplish the work of VUMC on a daily basis. Some of our teams are organizationally based (e.g. department, unit, clinic, etc.) and some of our teams are cross-functional, meaning people working together from two or more departments or job functions to work on a targeted need (clinical, product, change, problem, process improvement, etc.).

To recognize the efforts of two or more people linked to a common purpose working together in a shared practice, purpose, project or initiative, whose combined efforts deliberately made a change, improved a process, solved a problem or advanced our culture. The team efforts must exemplify the Credo behaviors in achieving their common purpose.
